If we know the rate at which the element decayed, we can estimate the amount of time that has elapsed since the rock was formed; that is the age of the rock. 1. 1. An isotopic decay curve. Knowing the amount of unstable isotope that was originally present, as well as the amount of unstable isotope now present and the rate of decay of the unstable isotope, it is possible to determine the age of a rock with that isotope in it. Suppose we found a rock with a ratio of 25% unstable parent : 75% stable daughter of a particular isotope.
Members of the group designated by node 1 are united by the possession of fur and a backbone; that group could be called Mammalia. Within the group Mammalia is a subset united by possession of carnivorous teeth (for example, “mammalian carnivores”).
